What we're about

We invite you to join us for our next Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class in Annapolis. You will find that MBSR is a simple, direct, and effective approach to life that addresses stress and encourages health. It offers a unique combination of internal skills and their practical application to health and wellbeing.

This course is based upon the MBSR program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn in the School of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts. MBSR has been featured on PBS in Bill Moyer's documentary "Healing and The Mind", the Oprah Winfrey Show, NBC's Dateline, ABC's Evening News, CNN with Anderson Cooper, and hundreds of newspapers, magazines, and research articles.

We will meet for an introduction/orientation, eight 2.5-hour long weekly classes, and one six-hour day-long workshop. This practical course includes: • Exploration into the nature of Mindfulness • Skills that enhance awareness and help manage stress • Instruction in mindfulness meditation • Group dialogue & discussions • Gentle stretching & mindful yoga • Daily home assignments • MBSR text book & handouts • CD containing guided meditation practices • Follow-up phone interviews with the instructor
